Angela Doak is a collage artist and photographer. All of her work is done first as collage, made up of fabric, candy and gum wrappers, misprints, junk mail, and just about anything else that fits the image she's making at the time. She lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with her husband and two children.

Quick Quotes

Readers will almost be able to feel the stiffness of the porcupine's quills or the warm softness of the doe sheltering her fawn. Doak captures the timidity of the vole, the tranquility of the bullfrog and the wariness of the fox. Some of the collages hint at a story in the making as the swimming otter twists upwards to catch a fish or the trout leaps into the air to snatch an unsuspecting fly.
  

The 26-page children's book is educational in more than one way, and offers a piece of Doak's heart and creativity with teaching children.
  

The gorgeous paper collage illustrations by photographer and collage artist, Angela Doak, make this board book eye catching and vibrant.
